    ESPN Disses Scott Pioli

    Essentially stating that Pioli owes his success to BB and if it were not for his sucessful alliance with BB - Pioli would be a failure. He sure has had a tough time in Kansas City. I thinks he's likely gone after this year.

    Re: ESPN Disses Scott Pioli

    Yeah, it seems pretty accurate. Guys who have thrived under BB have struggled elsewhere. That part is definitely true. 

    I found this part interesting:

    About the only thing Pioli did bring from New England was the same controlling nature that people familiar with the Patriots know very well. Multiple team sources say he's turned off longtime employees with a bullying management style. Published reports accuse him of lecturing staffers for not picking up candy bar wrappers in the hallways and chafing at the way assistant coaches park in the team's lot. During his first season with the team, Pioli sent emails warning employees to keep their window blinds drawn when the team was practicing, according to another team source. Those who didn't comply could expect somebody -- presumably a security guard -- to help them follow the rules.

    Look at the draft picks since Pioli left and you will see that its improved. Sure BB has missed big time with some of his picks, especially second round db's but show me a team that hasn't missed on draft picks.  Brady is a great player but one single player doesn't win super bowls or go 14-2. 

    BB and Brady are the main reason for their success . Wouldnt want another coach or QB here.

    You're right.  You can win 9 -11 games without a Tom Brady.



    Well they won 11 right fat? They are way better with Brady we all know that but to go 11-5 with a guy who hadn't played much since high school is good. Thanks for pointing that out, I'd forgotten

    Yeah, you could reunite the entire staff next year in Foxboro (not that we'd want to).  Pioli, Crennel, and even Weis may be gone after this year.  Weis probably gets another year, but he is headed for 1-11 at Kansas and has had little success since leaving the Pats.

    I get the impression that McDaniels coming back with remain the exception not the rule...

    That may be true but I would still like to see Crennel and whoever was the special teams coach back then return.

    If you ever read a Kansas City sport's section you'll find that they hate him and what he's done to that city and team. He has turned the fans off so much in that town (and that's hard to do there), that they are going to have to make a change. You can't have empty stadiums.

    That is the amazing part. The Chiefs fans are pretty fanatical... for them to really stop coming to games really means things are bad in KC...

    Pioli, like BB, owes his success to Tom Brady. BB has littered the NFL with awful former assistants that owe their careers to Brady.  You clowns are quick to credit BB with the Ravens 2000 superbowl win, but somehow don't want to give him credit for the Broncos, Chiefs, Browns and Jets failures due to his assistants.  Very strange.

    Pioli = exposed. If not for Brady he would be taking whatever job his father in law could find him.

    The ironic thing in all of this is that sans Brady this team went 11-5.  A lot of the naysayers and troll types said at the time that it was the system and the coaching that allowed Cassel to go 11-5 and it proved that Tom Brady was a system quarterback.  Now we're back to "well this team would stink without Brady" argument since Belichick was called overrated in a players' poll. 

    Tell me naysayers, in light of Cassel going 11-5, is it Brady or is it overrated BB that is the strenght of this team?   You can't say its Brady if you were the same ones saying that Brady is a system quarterback while citing Cassel's success in 2008 as proof.  Some of you make arguments out of both sides of your mouth, which proves that you're here to stir the pot without much substance. 


    And oh yeah, BB had the stones to franchise Cassel and get a 2nd rounder from KC.  Overrated football mind that he is.

    Are you talking about the 2008 Patriots coming off a superbowl loss, with a top 10 D built from free agent signings and fewer than 1/2 their wins against teams that didn't have a winning record?




    Yeah, led by a guy who hadn't played since high school and who had a year Mark Sanchez could only dream about.  Nice way to dodge the question.

    If they're going to crucify Pioli they should lionize Dimtroff for the job he has done in Atlanta (acquiring Ryan, Gonzo, White, Jones, Turner et al.....great moves).

    Pioli is simply finding out earlier what we all will find out shortly.

    Life in the NFL without a QB named "Brady" or "Manning" or "Rodgers" or "Brees" is not a lot of fun.

    You idiots who continuously bash Brady will be in for a rude awakening in the not too distant future. Enjoy it while you can.

    Bingo!! And you can add he is also finding out what it's like to try and operate without a coach like Belichick that can cover up draft mistakes.
